2016-2017 – PERMIT HOLDER NEWS FOR THE COARSE SEASON

Coarse Season News (Permit Holders) – 2016-2017Float2

There are some changes and clarification that permit holders need to be aware of for the 2016-2017 coarse season…

New water for this season.
Ouse Angling Preservation Society has entered into a water sharing agreement with Haywards Heath and District Angling Society (HHDAS) on a 1 mile stretch of the river on the right (south) bank downstream from the road bridge next to Sheffield Park station.
OAPS permit holders have access to this fishing starting immediately below the road bridge downstream as far as the HHDAS boundary sign.
Details of the new water are shown in the Information Pack you receive with your new season’s permit or click here to go the the webpage.

Mill Farm (a.k.a Brown’s).
Following agreement with the new owner at Mill Farm, the Society’s permit holders will continue to have access to the fishing there. In addition we have added Mill Farm to our day ticket fishery.
The Society has installed signs at all access points to the Mill Farm Fishery.
Please Note: There is NO parking allowed at Mill Farm itself. Rebuilding of the house there is ongoing with the accompanying movement of plant around the site. In order to avoid parked cars being damaged or impeding plant in the area, parking is not allowed there.

Bevern Stream day ticket fishing is no longer available.
The Society has, reluctantly, given up the fishing on the Bevern Stream downstream from the old railway bridge to the stream’s mouth, plus the fishing in the first fields on the west bank of the main river upstream and downstream of it.
The landowner has installed electric fences close to the edges of the river banks here to protect the horses that are housed there from getting into the river. This has made access to the river in the area extremely difficult so, for health and safety reasons,  we have given up the fishing.

Guest ticket clarification.
Guest tickets do not allow permit holders to take their guest to any of the Copthorne and District A.S. stillwaters, including Piltdown Pond.

There are a couple of changes that day ticket anglers need to be aware of for the 2016-2017 coarse season…

Day tickets at Mill Farm (a.k.a Brown’s).
Following a change in the farm’s ownership, day tickets are NO LONGER available at the farm and will NOT be sold on the bank.
Day tickets for Mill Farm are now sold by Ouse Angling Preservation Society ONLY as part of our day ticket fishery at various points between the Barcombe Mills Sluice gates and the Anchor Inn farm bridge.
Day tickets must be bought before starting fishing and are only available from our outlets, Permit Secretary or Head Bailiff – click here.
Signs have been installed at all access points to the Mill Farm Fishery to remind any day ticket anglers of the changes.
Please Note: There is NO parking allowed at Mill Farm itself. Rebuilding of the house there is ongoing with the accompanying movement of plant around the site. In order to avoid parked cars being damaged or impeding plant in the area, parking is not allowed there.

Bevern Stream day ticket fishing is no longer available.

The landowner has installed electric fences close to the edges of the river banks here to protect the horses that are housed there from getting into the river. This has made access to the river in the area extremely difficult so, for health and safety reasons,  we have given up the fishing.

Both of these changes are shown on this year’s day ticket map.
